Doctor Smith, the first African American to serve as MSMS president, will serve a one-year term and act as spokesperson for 15,000-member medical society on state and national policy issues.

As MSMS president, Doctor Smith plans to focus his attention on increasing collaboration among physicians, health systems, insurers and government to increase access to quality medical care for the residents of Michigan.

"This year brings unprecedented economic challenges, but also unique opportunities to address the needed improvements in health care," Doctor Smith said in his inaugural address. "As physicians, we offer hope and consistency in this time of uncertainty and leadership when it is needed most. We encourage collaboration between business and government to work to bring basic health care service to all citizens of Michigan."

A seventh-generation Michiganian, Doctor Smith completed his undergraduate education at the University of Michigan and earned his medical degree with honors from Howard University College of Medicine in Washington, D.C. He completed his residency in obstetrics/gynecology at Wayne State University.

Doctor Smith, a senior staff physician at Henry Ford Hospital for more than 28 years, is Service Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology and has delivered more than 7,000 babies.
